With the start of winter only a few days away, (technically) you might want to start thinking about the little things you can do to warm up the spaces in your home.
It’s quite popular today to decorate with a minimalist approach: organized spaces with no clutter give off a very clean impression. But while this look can be great, it can also be a colder environment. So when the temperature starts flirting with the freezing mark, it’s probably time to start exploring ways to warm up our spaces for the winter.
It’s very easy to add warmth to your space without creating clutter and without spending a lot of money. Here are a few tips.
I guess half the battle is recognizing when it’s time to change your decor, but the challenge is knowing how to start the project, especially when there are so many options available.
So many questions start to fill your head, all legitimate: Where do I start? What stays? What goes? How much will it cost? Can I do this on my own?
It’s time to examine your room and ask yourself some key questions: your room has been the way it is for several years, what did you really like about the room? What did you dislike about the room? These answers will help you understand what you want to change and why you want to change it.
One special gift that is guaranteed to not be forgotten in the new year is a beautiful, new piece of furniture or accessories for your home.
The first three weeks of December are a very special time at Decorium: this is the time when manufacturers inform us of items that will be discontinued in the new year.
These products receive drastic price reductions prior to Boxing week in order to make room for new items in the coming year.
We sell so many bedroom sets every week, but I am always puzzled by one consistent way of thinking that most consumers have: why is the mattress the last piece of furniture consumers consider when furnishing a bedroom?
We can all agree that the mattress is the single most important piece of furniture we have in our homes. So maybe it’s just that we can’t see the mattress when our room is complete? Out of sight, out of mind.
The average person will spend one third of their life sleeping. The consequences of not getting adequate sleep are well-documented, so why wouldn’t our mattress be at the top of our minds when furnishing our bedrooms?
Our time is so valuable to us. With no time to waste, why do so many of us shop for home furnishings when we are totally unprepared?
If we don’t want to waste our time, why don’t we do our homework prior to visiting the store?
If you want to be prepared and make the most of your valuable time, follow this small “homework” assignment that will make your shopping experience more efficient and productive.
1. Create a look book – cut out pictures from decorating magazines of rooms that you like. This will help you explain to your design associate exactly the look that you want to create.
Gone are the days of old basement bars. Those mirrored walls with glass shelves displaying old, dusty liquor bottles. Back in the day, these bars were usually an embarrassment to the woman of the house, who couldn’t stand the sight of that wood-panelled monstrosity! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could marry a beautiful piece of furniture that mom would be happy to display in her living room and something functional where dad could store his liquor and paraphernalia?
Decorium has it all covered. Our collection of beautiful bar furnishings is currently being featured in our showroom, just in time for the upcoming holiday season! Our collection includes stunning armoires that can store and display everything you would have in a bar but can be closed when not in use. If space is minimal, we also feature smaller bar consoles that can accommodate your bottles and accessories.
Trends in home furnishings come and go, but some things are timeless. One of those timeless items is quality leather furniture; leather is always in fashion.
When you choose a quality leather product, you are choosing something that will serve you for many years. It only gets better with time and use. This reminds me of a question sent in by a reader. Eva from North York wrote, “We are looking for a new sofa. I have three young children, 2, 7 and 9. What is the most durable cover we can select for our new sofa?” Thanks for the great question, Eva. This is actually a very common question and my response is always the same.
